Which DAW Is Best To Start With?

Ok! So there are rumors amongst home-based producers that says one DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) like Pro-Tools is better than Ableton or Cubase is better than Logic.

Let’s do the the challenge then. Tell one of your producer friends to turn on the radio. NO.. RIGHT NOW! Go to the radio. Listen to the first song that comes on. Ask him/her to tell you what DAW the song is recorded with. Without having inside knowledge, how would they know?

I’m waiting.. any clue? No? I’ll tell you. It was recorded with the one they prefer. It was mixed with the one they prefer. It was mastered on one that they prefer. Preference is the key. Experimenting on what is easy for you and what YOU like is the key.  

Google and download some free/demo DAWs. Figure out which one YOU like. Try them all. Make sure you’ve had your computer set up for recording first. 

NOTE: when purchasing a DAW, always keep in mind what it is you want to make at the end of the day. You get what you pay for in most cases.

Remember. It’s not the size of your STUDIO that makes the music, but the size of MUSIC that makes the studio.  

Happy recording!
